Well for those of us fans who have been waiting ever so patiently for an announcement about Nuclear Dawn on Linux wait no more. Interwave Studios has given a update on the Linux Development of Nuclear Dawn.
Today on their steam group announcement page they post this message to their Linux fans. This message was posted by Team member Viper:
Good news for all you Linux fans out there, we have started to work on Nuclear Dawn version 7.0 which apart from some bug fixes will also include support for Linux! Stay tuned for more news later this month!
I have been looking forward for this news for a while. For those who haven’t heard of Nuclear Dawn
Nuclear Dawn is the first game to offer a full FPS and RTS experience, within a single gameplay model, without crippling or diluting either side of the game.
As a soldier, explore war-torn post-apocalyptic landscapes, modelled on modern cities, and take the fight to your enemies as armoured, assault or stealth infantry, using various weapons across ten distinct load-outs to accomplish your objectives. The first person shooter action in Nuclear Dawn is hard, fast and unforgiving, with weapons that rely on skill and tactics more than on twitch reflexes and map memorization.
Then, take Nuclear Dawn above the action, and play as the commander. Organize your fellow players in squads, and assign them to tactical objectives. Plan the resource routes for your army, and production of your structures for forward deployment. Exploit the terrain and resource point locations to block your enemies’ advance, and crush their plans in an iron fist. Research and implement new technologies to give your soldiers the edge on the battlefield, and set up forward bases to lead the assault on your enemies, with a full complement of defensive and offensive structures to choose from, to build your perfect fortress.
With this announcement coming out you know a release date is not far behind. You better believe I am going to play the heck out of this game after its released. and maybe some tournaments , so you better get your ND clan ready.
What are your thoughts on Nuclear Dawn? Are you excited?
